Sunday Matters: Vacation, Over

Sunday Matters

Today is the last day of my vacation. Sunday Scaries are in full swing. I am still working remotely tomorrow and I saw a campus post about going virtual for the beginning of the spring semester so I will get the details on that tomorrow. It was inevitable. The other day LA County had nearly 44K new cases reported for the DAY. That doesn’t count in-home tests. It’s everywhere.

Right Now:

Student ministry is back today so I will be heading over in a bit. Must load up on coffee first. Looks like it will be a beautiful day.

This Week:

My club ended up discussing Migrations via Zoom last week. It was a good book for discussion. I need to write up the review. I also finished Our Country Friends so I must write that review as well. I really enjoyed it.

First Book 2022: Our Country Friends

Besides review writing, this week will be all about the return to work. It’s also the last week before my daughter heads back to Missouri. She leaves 1/16. The time went by so fast.

Reading:

I think my next book will be The School for Good Mothers. I have two review copies I really need to get to but I will probably reach for this one first because I am hearing all sort of things about it and I don’t want any spoilers.

Watching:

Working our way through Cobra Kai. And after loving Squid Game I am moving on to The Silent Sea which has one actor from Squid Game in it.

Grateful for:

  • That my son’s cat Root Beer is now officially his. She is spayed, chipped, has her shots and she will now be fully indoors as the vet found a BB pellet in her stomach. Small towns don’t care for feral cats. Sad.
  • That I decided to take this extra week off. I didn’t do much but it was good.

Have a wonderful Sunday and great week! Check on me mid-week I may need some encouragement.

Sunday Matters: And Just Like That, Christmas Is Over and 2022 is Here

Sunday Matters

The holidays sneak up on us every year but this year it seemed to come and go so quickly. That’s what happens when you only see your kids for a short while and everything hangs on that visit. I am so glad that they could both be here for a little while.

My son was with us for a week but left on Christmas Eve to return to his cat Root Beer and his AmeriCorps gig. Good timing because his little town in Kansas has been below 10 degrees for their high and although Root Beer was feral, it’s too cold for her. Luckily while he was gone the temps were mild.

Right Now:

Student ministry is breaking until January 9th so I have my Sunday mornings to lounge around and be lazy.

This Week:

I have off until 1/10 so I have one last week to enjoy. My daughter leaves on 1/16 so she has some time to hang out as well. All I have this week is book club and I just remembered it. I suppose I should read the book, Migrations.

Migrations

Reading:

I will be reading the above for book club but I selected my first book of the year as well so I will be piggy-backing this one with that one. More to come on that.

Watching:

I sipped the Squid Game Kool-Aid and now I am hooked.

Grateful for:

  • A nice warm house to cozy up in. It’s been so cold here.
  • My time off. I do love this time of the year.

Have a wonderful Sunday and great week! Happy New Year!
